7 Cambie Corridor and Council s Priorities Building Strong, Safe and Inclusive Communities Environment and Sustainability Creative Capital and a Growing Economy Homelessness and Affordable Housing 7

8 Cambie Corridor Principles 1. Provide land use that optimizes the investment in transit 2. Provide a complete community 3. Create a walkable and cycleable corridor of neighbourhoods seamlessly linked to public transit 8 Phase 1 Approved

9 Cambie Corridor Principles 4. Focus intensity and community activity at stations and other areas with strategic opportunities for sustainability, renewable energy and public amenity 5. Provide a range of housing choices and affordability 6. Balance city-wide and regional goals with the community and its context 7. Ensure job space and diversity 9 Phase 1 Approved

10 Draft Cambie Corridor Plan Summary Offers diverse opportunities to work, live, shop, play and learn Enhances the public realm Ensures continued access to public amenities Focuses densities stratgically Mid-rise buildings with taller buildings at key locations Strategic location of job space 10Considers transitions

11 An Evolving Plan Key Elements: Striving to achieve urban design excellence Seeking to optimize sustainability performance Draft Plan has changed based on: Public consultation Urban design studies 11

12 Urban Systems and Public Realm Strategy 12

13 Optimizing Energy Use District Energy (DE) low carbon, cost effective and efficient Develop a corridor-wide DE Strategy DE business case analysis required for large sites All new buildings required to be connectable to a DE system 13

14 Enhancing Movement Prioritize walking, cycling and transit on the Corridor and connecting streets Create routes and infrastructure that are safe, attractive, convenient, navigable, barrier-free and accessible 14

15 Improving Connections Increase the accessibility of existing open space along the corridor Create a series of additional pedestrian links at key locations Break down the scale of blocks and create a network for people to move throughout the neighbourhood. 15

16 Enhancing Streets and Lanes Create a pedestrian-friendly network through active and engaging street and lanes Residential and commercial lanes will become usable, safe, and beautiful public places Prioritize the movement and interaction of pedestrians on streets and lanes Facilitate movement of automobiles and service vehicles in a safe manner in lanes 16

17 Creating Public Plazas and Mini-Parks Provide areas of respite, identification, and opportunity for social interaction. Mark key streets that connect Cambie Street to neighbourhood amenities Reflect the context within the corridor as either green or urban spaces Create plazas and mini-parks as new development occurs 17

18 Improving Green Space Retain and enhance the Boulevard as a unique and highly valued community amenity Make best use of existing green space Ensure enhanced biodiversity Adhere to principles of sustainable design and management 18

19 Protecting Habitat Nature in the city can provide stress relief, improve health, purify air and water, sequester carbon, and create habitat for endangered/threatened species. Protect and restore the Fraser River and aquatic habitat Increase biodiversity through high quality ecological landscapes in the public realm protect and restore terrestrial habitat 19

20 Social Diversity and Resilience & Housing Diversity 20

21 Ensuring Continued Access to Public Amenities Use interim public benefits strategy to evaluate public benefits contributions from rezoning applications: Affordable and rental housing Childcare Parks, plazas and other public realm improvements Civic Facilities Non-profit and Cultural space Develop a comprehensive public benefits strategy Explore the use of density bonus zoning tool 21

22 Housing Strategy 20% affordable market rental housing * units in target rental areas as a requirement of rezoning Requirement capped at 50% of the CAC Cash in lieu option at City s discretion Sites adjacent to stations will provide affordable market rental housing as part of a negotiated approach Achieve a target of 20% of total dwelling units as affordable housing on all large sites Preserve rental housing between 19 th and 24 th Replace rental housing on RT sites south of Marine Drive Family housing targets (25% of market / 50% of nonmarket) * Rent levels will reflect market rates and affordability will be achieved through modest size, finishing and other design considerations. 22

23 A City of Neighbourhoods 23

24 Neighbourhood Approach CAMBIE VILLAGE A City of Neighbourhoods Identified: Description of neighbourhood character Street level & bird s-eye views Specific heights, densities and land uses Section drawings showing massing, height, & the interface to adjacent properties QUEEN ELIZABETH OAKRIDGE TOWN CENTRE LANGARA MARINE LANDING 24

25 Cambie Village Walkable mixed-use urban village King Edward (4-6 storeys) Cambie Street (6 8 storeys) retain rental housing (19 th 24 th ) 25

26 Queen Elizabeth Green, park-like residential area Cambie Street (6 storeys) 26

27 Oakridge Town Centre Lively, mixed-use, high density urban centre Cambie Street (6 12 storeys) 41 st Avenue (4-8 storeys) 27

28 Langara Walkable mixed-use area surrounding Langara College Cambie Street (6 10 storeys) 49th Avenue (4 storeys) 28

29 Marine Landing 29

30 Marine Landing: Mixed Employment Zone Employment uses framing Cambie St will provide visual interest to passing pedestrians. Building heights could be up to 100ft and are intended to be of significant density/intensity. Buildings may include space for a variety of employment uses and large floor plates are expected. Residential land use is not permitted. Industrial lands protected east and west of mixed employment area. 30

31 Broad and Robust Involvement Cards sent out to households & businesses Program website Media Coverage Vancouver Matters Ads Program list serve (over 850 members) Facebook & Twitter Posters at local facilities Special events Flyered at stations 13,000 households and businesses 31

32 Community Group and Stakeholder Consultation Riley Park/South Cambie Vision Implementation Committee Marpole Area Network Marpole Area Residents Alliance Vancouver Economic Development Commission Metro Vancouver NAIOP Port of Vancouver TransLink Urban Development Institute Vancouver Airport Authority Vancouver Board of Trade Cambie BIA 32

33 Research and Learning Roundtable leading practitioners UBC Planning / Architecture and Landscape Architecture SFU City Program Consultants i.e. IBI TransLink Sustainability practitioners 33

34 Consultation Highlights: What We Heard Increasing density around transit stations is a positive change that will allow more people to live and work without the need for a car Density and land use mix around rapid transit can help achieve sustainability goals Affordable housing and social resilience are key values Broad support for increased density on the corridor Localized concern that proposed buildings are too high and too dense Concern for overshadowing, parking issues, loss of privacy, loss of views Concerns with phased approach want the bigger picture 34

35 Consultation Highlights: What We Heard Proposed changes will impact character Sustainability goals can be achieved through a diversity of building forms (not necessarily towers) Increased density and growth should be accompanied by an increase in amenities Canada Line capacity is a concern Unique neighbourhood character is important Even higher densities are needed, particularly around current and future transit stations 35

36 Implementation / Future Work Create a Detailed Public Realm Plan Develop a Comprehensive Public Benefits Strategy Develop a Corridor-wide District Energy Strategy Develop a Corridor-wide Utilities Strategy Phase 3 new housing opportunities in surrounding neighbourhoods 36

37 In Conclusion. 37

38 Recommendations Approve the plan Proceed with future work including: Detailed public realm plan District energy strategy Utility serving strategy Comprehensive public benefits strategy Phase 3 planning 38
